tleap doesn't know how to do this, aside from the special case of
solvating with a truncated octahedron, via SolvateBox. For a more
general case, use tleap's setBox command to create a periodic system,
then use the ChBox program (outside tleap) to enter the actual
dimensions you want.

There are, but I can't seem to find the one I used to rely on now.
Check out the gromacs manual page, which may have the information you
